Re: New Audi A8 launch confirmed

Well I drive predominantly A roads with usual speeds of around 55/60 with occasional bouts of overtaking,on the display the average mpg hovers around 20mpg- but in reality I get a range of around 450 miles from a 90 litre tank. Once or twice i left the tank pretty empty before a refill -the warning display showing,but there was still about 1/12 of a tank there- so quite alot of fuel left from a 90litre tank. I think if i were being very conscientious I could get close to a 500 mile range, but really my drive consists of very little stop/start or stuck in jams,so i guess that's to be expected.

Have you been in an S-Class? I'm beginning to wonder. You might prefer the A8's interior but the way it goes is objectively in another ballpark

Yes, a relative has always bought V8 S-class Mercedes in some form or other as far back as I can remeber. It wasn't the car I wanted and although I haven't seen his latest one, I know someone with a current S320cdi. I personally didn't want RWD or FWD but needed AWD & had decided against a 7 Series and an AMG CLS mainly for that reason. The CLS is about the only Mercedes, bar the C class I like, but on driving it, it seemed to be a statement car, so wasn't really for me . I did think about the M5, but the small tank and the jerky gearbox put me off, but we did consider a 550, along with 750, but again, it kept coming back to the fact it was RWD and i just didn't want that, not where i live. The A8 had always been a draw in its current form, so I guess its no surpise once i got in and sampled the interior and that sweet revving W12 i chose it. Perhaps the only surprise was opting for a W12 and not the 4.2 TDI, but not in choosing an A8. I haven't driven an S-class, just sat in tons.My Dad has an E- Class, which i know has left him practically stranded on some of the roads here when visiting in winter.
